Eve Levine-half-demon, black witch, and devoted mother-has been dead for three years. She has a great house, an interesting love life, and can't be killed again-which comes in handy when you've made as many enemies as Eve has. Yes, the afterlife isn't too bad. All she needs to do is find a way to communicate with her daughter, Savannah, and she'll be happy.But fate-or more exactly, the Fates-have other plans. Eve owes them a favor, and they've just called it in. An evil spirit called the Nix has escaped from Hell. She feeds on chaos and death, and is very good at persuading people to kill for her. The Fates want Eve to hunt her down before she does any more damage, but the Nix is a dangerous enemy-previous hunters have been driven insane in the process. As if that's not problem enough, the only way to stop her is with an angel's sword. And Eve is no angel.

For the first third of the book I really enjoyed it and found it fast-paced. I started to wonder why I hadn't loved it the first time around. But then the pace got really bogged down and for the remainder of the book it was a struggle to finish ... again.
I had two big issues with this book both times I read it. First, the story hinges on the reader understanding Armstrong's description of the afterlife. I found her descriptions quite convoluted with various afterlife dimensions including ghost/demon hell and even an island of ghost pirates. Wha? There's also the confusing issue of ghosts being able to harm each other in the Afterworld. How does one land a punch with a ghost if you're also a ghost? Angels also make an appearance into the melee but the angel that Eve deals with is no avenging angel. He comes off as kind of a wuss who is constantly making mistakes and leaving Eve and Kristoff to pick up the pieces so it was really hard to like him.
The other issue is that I never felt like I really got to know Eve. When she was mentioned in previous books she was a hell raiser but in this book she felt like a different person. Not as tough. I liked seeing her maternal side but thought she'd bring more energy and sass to the story.
I hate to give a book in this series a low rating but this one missed the target (twice) for me. That said, I'm really looking forward to moving on in the series with my favourites, Elena and Clay, in Broken.
My Rating: 2.5/5 stars (increased to 3 stars for this site)
As a new woman of the Otherworld, I found Savannah to be not as great as I'd hoped. Perhaps because she's a bit whiny at the beginning, wanting to run her own investigation assignment. Perhaps because she's so eager to prove herself she takes dumb risks. I'm not sure if this is the fault of my expectations, or if she's a disappointing character. Perhaps I'm just not sympathetic to risk-taking twenty-somethings.
I loved the mystery in WAKING THE WITCH. I wasn't sure whodunnit until the very end. I love it when mysteries build up so that the outcome could go one of two ways.
With regards to the hot guys, I was very sad for Savannah. She was on the right track, getting involved with someone else, trying to forget about her school-girl crush, Adam. And then it doesn't work out. I wasn't too happy about this-- I wanted it to work out-- but I think the point of WAKING THE WITCH may be to see Savannah take risks, make mistakes and grow up.
I also loved that we were back to learning more about the witches' culture. Though their magic may not be as flashy as other races in the Otherworld, and the coven women can be quite catty, I think they're the most understated race, so it was nice to see them in action again.
WAKING THE WITCH is a great start to the final three books in the Otherworld series.
HAUNTED is the 5th novel in Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series. Haunted, told from varying POVs, focuses on Eve Levine and Kristof Nash-Savannah's recently deceased parents. As both a witch and a demon, Eve has been summoned by the Fates to take down the Nix. Calling in a favor for saving Lucas and Page, the Fates demand that Eve pay up.
As a ghost, Eve is unable to communicate with Savannah, and the frustration continues when she secretly looks in from time to time on Paige and Lucas, ensuring that Savannah is all right. But making sure her daughter is protected has come at a price.
Nix is a demi-demon who thrives on chaos. Inhabiting the bodies of people on the cusp of a kill, the demi-demon pushes the people to murder, thereby ensuring chaos reigns. On the run after an escape from hell, the Nix is making trouble in the human realm and the Fates have ordered Eve to locate and eradicate the Nix. But trouble continues to follow Eve as the Nix now endeavors to locate those closest to exact retribution. All is not lost when an Angel offers his aid-and with the help of Trsiel, Eve will be reborn into something she never expected or dreamed.
HAUNTED is another fascinating storyline from the mind of Kelley Armstrong. We will meet Eve throughout the series, culminating in the final novel THIRTEEN. Even Trsiel will make a few more appearances. One may wonder why Kelley introduces various characters and storylines throughout the series, but all will be answered in the final instalment of THIRTEEN
